At PI4COM we now have 8 permanent beverages in different directions and
soon we will add 2 more. We used daiwa coax switches in the past when we
only had 3 .... it is not so hard to make a coax relais switch but the
control box layout can be made in many different ways. What is a
efficient way ? Push buttons with a led indication on a great circle map
pointing to the USA when that beverage is selected? A digital switch
with 10 numbers and a list what number is what? Switches on the front or
top of the box, on a line or in a circle. May be you have seen the
Microsoft ergonomic keyboard nice and round ? Anyway I like to exchange
some experiance with stations which have a simular setup. I am not the
technical man of the group but I will pass all information to the pesons
who will make the switch box. I hope to get a lot of reactions.
